select an North American social issue or ethical dilemma in the news. Find two recent articles from two different types of media sources on the issue. In your introduction, for both of your examples, be sure to carefully identify what types of sources you are analyzing (news story, editorial, commentary), the name of the media company, and the date and author. Then, answer the following questions:
What assumptions do you make about these articles before reading them? How is your mind already “at work”?
What is the main claim and/or point of view expressed (if there is one) by the article? Is the article objectively written? Be careful here – if the article is an editorial opinion, note that the purpose of this type of article is very different from that of a news story. If you are analyzing an editorial, is the argument presented logically?
Apply evaluative criteria to your analysis. Is there a particular audience that the article is targeting? Is there an appeal to sensationalism? Can you discern a vested ideological perspective?
What is a peer-reviewed source? What peer-reviewed sources did you find that helped in thinking critically about your issue?
Cite all claims and ideas using scholarly sources.
Include at least one scholarly source that is not part of the required or recommended reading for this course.
Your paper should be 4 pages in length (not including the title page and reference page).
